    Just received mine yesterday via amazon after reading this forum + a couple reviews on youtube. Extremely happy with it! Even came about 5 days early. Currently running my pro-ject debut carbon directly to the phono, along with an NAD cd player. Love the sound, although I am still figuring out whether I like triode or UL better.

    However, I am completely new to tube amps and did have one question. It seems to me most people here recommend rolling to the gold lion KT88s. Should I decide to go down that road, would biasing for those tubes work the same as the stock tubes (aka aim for the 40 on the VU meter)?

    Take your time. Let it burn in for a while. Enjoy it as it is. When you feel the need for a change do it. Don’t rush on an unnecessary upgrade. Maybe a new cartridge might be a better bang for your money.

    Received my x7 3/6/21. Works fine and looks fine too. Like the new sound over Yamaha receiver. Tonal differences àre positive and soundtage already opening up. My Heresey ones seem to like the amp too. But it's not burned in yet. Only thing unusual is the VU meters aren't totally perfect. Left one is a little off and they are not exactly same location when off. Does that suggest bias is okk???
    Also trying to figure best path to use x7 for music but speakers also to be used with Yammie for movies. Would that be a speaker switch? There was also some online chatter about dangers of using both tubed and ss amps like that. Any suggestions welcome. Have a Yamaha sub would like to add but not with the pass through. Thank you!

    After reading this thread, and other similar threads and reviews; I went ahead and ordered a MUZISHARE X7 for myself from hifi-exquis.com. They had a much better price from their own website vs. what they listed on AliExpress. I had a couple of questions about the order and within an hr I received a response.
    $1250 shipped was just too good of a price to pass up. I look forward to receiving this amp and hearing the comparisons between it and my ss receiver.

    Well, maybe I spoke too quickly about this company. I received and email telling me that I would need to send them and additional $82 for shipping charges citing multiple reasons, none of them really made much sense but I know that using a blanket charge for shipping can cost more than anticipated. Still, they should have let me know before the purchase price that it would cost more for shipping.
    So I sent them a counter offer. I'll let you know how this turns out.

    I currently use a speaker/amp switch that works fine, for similar reasons. Have a denon for TV, and the muzishare for music.. I just make sure the muzishare is completely off before i ever press the button. I don't notice any difference in tone/sound, and have no trouble.

    This is the one I use: TC-7220 2-Way Amp Amplifier / Speaker Selector Switch Switcher Splitter Combiner 630158285822 | eBay

    Thanks U-Raptor for the info. Hooked up dvd player to the x7. Even cds sound amazing. My son commented how even they sounded better. People refer to tube amps as valve amps....more like music pumps. The amp is starting to open up the Soundstage and it's delicious. The Muzishare x7 is a very good amp for Klipsch Heresey ones. The bass is stronger than ever but as always the recording determines that. I am happy with my purchase and lamenting I didn't go for tube amps years ago.
